Complete genome sequence of Escherichia coli BLR(DE3), a recA-deficient derivative of E. coli BL21(DE3).

Authors: Goffin, Philippe and Dehottay, Philippe

Escherichia coli BLR(DE3) is a commercially available recA-deficient derivative of BL21(DE3), one of the most widely used strains for recombinant protein expression. Here, we present the full-genome sequence of BLR(DE3) and highlight additional differences with its parent strain BL21(DE3) which were previously unreported but may affect its physiology.
